Matching Process

FIFSW students signed the Code of Conduct at admission and must abide by it. Please find more information at:

Students are informed, if accommodations are required, to register as soon as possible with Accessibility Services and obtain a letter outlining the accommodations required for their practicum.

The FIFSW Practicum Office will work with students to locate a practicum supervisor who meets the ITR Field Instruction Standards. Field instructors are also encouraged to e-mail practicum.fsw@utoronto.ca with their practicum offer at any time. Practicums are posted on our Practicum Administration System (PAS). Field instructors are provided a password to access their profile with their practicum offer, and describe the requirements such as a driver’s license, a car, evening and/or weekend hours.

Once approved and matched, a customized schedule indicating major milestones and a Learning/Safety Checklist will be e-mailed to the student, field instructor and Faculty-Field Liaison.

Students and potential field instructors must submit an Employment-Based Practicum Application to be considered for a practicum in a place of employment.

 

Learning / Safety Checklist, Learning Contract, Mid-term and Final Evaluation

The Learning/Safety Checklist is due on Day 2 of the Practicum. It is completed by the student and field instructor, and submitted to practicum.fsw@utoronto.ca.

The Learning Contract is due on Day 12 of the Practicum, is completed by the student and field instructor, and e-mailed to the Faculty-Field Liaison. Students and field instructors are encouraged to review the evaluation tool when developing their Learning Contract.

The online evaluation tool is completed on the PAS at mid-term and on the final day of practicum.
